The Respest of A Athletic Director
May 14, 2012By ED Broderick of Todd County Central High School
If you are an athletic director in 2012, you are thinking about how to improve sportsmanship in your athletic program. You may have revamped your athlete conduct code and put initiatives in place for promoting positive behavior. Maybe one of your teams has won a sportsmanship award from your state association.
That brings me to our athletic director at TCCHS Mr Carlton Evans. Mr Evans has made a vast improvment in the way our coaches communcate with our players. Evan has made our coaches undrestand that teaching our kids is better than down grading them. Sportsmanship was almost dead at TCCHS. Players with no care and no understanding of the game can make for a long season. I'm not talking about win or loss records. Respect is what I'm talking about.
When I first came to Todd County, Other schools didnt like playing us because of our respect for the game. Thank You Mr Evans for showing us the light. I hope that he knows that his work with the program has mede it successful in many ways. I hope that he is going to be with the program much longer. I feel that this is a baby program now, But with his direction and respect for the game TCCHS will be bringing home gold soon. Sometimes our programs overshadow our AD. Mr Carlton Evans casts a respectively large shadow. I like to thank Mr Evans and wish him best of luck in the future.
